    Getting ready to reupholster my seats, I have one set of what I thought were 68s and also a set of 67s judging by the vertical vs horizontal lines. My question is will either set work in my 67 coupe. Found a tag on 68 seats. Anyone know if they are 68s, tag says 12/26/67. Here's a pic.[​IMG]

    C8 designation is 1968. 12/26/67 is also 1968 production time.

    Thanks, found 2 tags on the other set, has a C7 and those are the set with 68 upholstery on them, guess they were done before at some point. [​IMG]

    I had always thought the '68 seat frames were different from the '65-'67 frames.

    That's what I heard, but flipping them over they look the same. Guess I'll just stick them in the car and see which set fits better.

    I thought the differences were mainly in the seat back frame--perhaps the '68 is a little thicker. Is there a latch on the '68 seat?

    Only difference i see on bottom is where my finger is pointing. 68 has a solid plate, the other has open wire.[​IMG]

    For future reference, either one of the backs fit fine, 68 bottom did not want to latch, 67 went right in.

    Ohhh...I didn't know you were talking about the BACK seat. As Emily Litella would say...Never Mind.

    I believe the back seat is the same for 65-68

    I can't imagine why it would be different.
